This month, Nelson’s Journey chose ABC to be the ‘Spotlight on Support’. This is what they had to say about us:
‘ABC Taxis started supporting Nelson’s Journey in 2012. They provide us with a monthly credit for bereaved children and young people to be transported to our therapeutic weekends and activity days at Hilltop Outdoor Centre. This means that all families, no matter what their circumstances, can access our therapeutic interventions. They also provide taxis to our Norwich NJ Club and for families to Smiles House for 1:1 visits. ABC also supported our Youth Panel’s Car Sticker initiative in 2013, and in 2015 branded up a taxi showing their support for Nelson’s Journey.
Director Simon Callender tells us ‘All we wanted to do was to support a local charity where we could actually do something to help, rather than to just donate money. We provide transport to the children to and from Hilltop Outdoor Centre in Sheringham. The drivers enjoy being involved in something that is important to the children and the families and I was very moved by some of the stories I heard when we first became involved with Nelson’s Journey. We hope to continue our support in the future.’
The support given to us by ABC Taxis means that we have saved thousands of pounds on taxi fares over the past 4 years, and it has allowed us to use the money we would’ve spent on transport on helping more bereaved children and young people across the county. It’s wonderful to have a partnership of this kind with such a great local business, and we appreciate all their support and awareness-raising over the years.’
